Booknews
Takes herbivory as the central focus to look at the relationship between plants, plant eaters, and predatory and parasitic plant-eater eaters. The 19 papers consider plants shaping the evolution of insect herbivores, herbivores and vegetation succession, scaling up from food intake to community dynamics in vertebrate herbivores, and the effect of higher trophic levels on interactions between plants and herbivores. Among the specific topics are butterflies as a model group for the ecology and evolution of host plant range, compensation and additive effects of herbivore diversity and plant dynamics, digestive and ingestive adaptations of mammalian herbivores to low-quality forage, and individual-based modelling as an integrative approach in theoretical and applied population dynamics and food web studies.
